#peacehack returns to London in 2016

We’re pleased to announce that #peacehack returns to London for the third consecutive year this October, as part of International Alert’s Talking Peace Festival

The theme for this years’ #peacehackLDN will be ‘hacking hate speech’. Over two days, the hackathon will examine the real issues of Islamophobia faced by Muslims in the UK and beyond as part of International Alert’s European Youth Advocates Against Islamophobia project – which aims to train Muslim and non-Muslim young people on how to advocate against Islamophobia in schools at a regional and national level.

Last year the #peacehack series went global, with events running in cities around the world from Barcelona, Beirut and Colombo to London and Washington. These all generated some inspiring ideas for building peace in different urban settings – some of which are now in development. Read more here.

We’ll be announcing dates and venue soon, and a sign up page.  Stay up to date on the Talking Peace Festival by following on Twitter @TalkPeaceFest and liking the Facebook page.

**UPDATE** The sign-up page is now live at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/peacehackldn-2016-tickets-26537153340
